About Us

The Fresh Food Collective was formed to solve two problems we face in America: food waste and hunger.
The Collective is led by Comfort Food Community. It includes local farms, businesses, non-profits, churches, libraries and individual citizens. We believe that in a country of such abundance, everyone should have access to Real. Fresh. Food.

About Comfort Food Community

You're Not Alone

Fresh produce is healthier, but more expensive, than non-perishable goods, which means many people experiencing food insecurity do not have access to it. It is the Fresh Food Collective’s mission to contribute to the health of our community through the power of good food.
